Cleaning

Here at Dr. Rossinski Dental Health, we promote the best in oral hygiene so you can live your healthiest life. If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, daily brushing and flossing keeps the dentist away. For maximum oral health, we advise regular dental check-ups. Bringing a wealth of oral health education and services to our New York City office, our dental hygienists provide each patient with the utmost comfort, professionalism and tips for at-home care. During your cleaning, plaque and stains will be removed from all teeth surfaces and potential dental problems will be addressed. We use the latest technologies and dental x-rays to properly examine your teeth.

Deep Cleaning

To effectively eradicate harmful bacteria, we recommend a deep cleaning. Unlike a regular cleaning that only focuses on the surfaces of the teeth and between teeth, a deep cleaning goes further to remove bacteria that has collected under the gum line. We use advanced technologies and topical antibiotics like Arestin to effectively address your dental needs.

 
 

Bad Breath

While minty chewing gum and mints are common bad breath blockers, we have a robust arsenal of oral cleaning agents to help get rid of bad breath. Sometimes, improper or inadequate dental hygiene is to blame, while other times, bad breath is attributed to digestive reasons. We work with in a personal consultation to properly diagnose your bad breath symptoms and direct you to the proper referral if one is needed.

Gum Disease

The first stage of gum disease is inflammation of the gums, commonly known as gingivitis. To treat inflammation, we suggest scheduling regular cleanings and ozone treatments. This also helps prevent the second stage of gum disease, periodontitis. If you do experience periodontitis, we offer Arestin, a topical antibiotic that works to help diseased gums heal faster. For deeper cleanings and gum disease treatment, a numbing agent is used to prevent discomfort. In extreme conditions, we work with the best specialists in every field to ensure you receive the highest level of service. If you experience bleeding of the gums or loose teeth, please schedule an appointment immediately at (212) 673-3700.

 
 

Canker Sores

Though their origins are unknown, canker sores are common and unfortunately painful unless properly treated. Stress or tissue injury can sometimes cause simple canker sores, while highly acidic or citrus foods also play a role. Whatever the cause, canker sores are bacterial and viral and can lead to increased pain. To eradicate canker sores, we carefully diagnose you to provide the right treatment or medication, laser treatment or palliative treatment.

 

Anesthesia

For patient comfort and safety, we provide anesthesia. This is used to prevent pain in your mouth during treatment by numbing tissues in the mouth that transmit pain. If you are prone to sensitivity in the mouth, you may require a topical anesthetic, while more invasive procedures require an injectable anesthetic.

 

Homecare Instructions

To keep teeth and gums healthy, we recommend using gum picks by GUM. These soft rubber tips are perfect for cleaning in between teeth. Flossing should be done daily, so we recommend Reach Total Care by Johnson and Johnson because the floss is soaked in mouthwash for an extra clean taste. With so many toothpastes available, we help narrow it down by recommending a right toothpaste for your mouth, like a three-in-one Fluoridex that includes a fluoride treatment and super-strength desensitizer. And of course, with your toothbrush being an essential tool, we believe Sonicare! Toothbrushes provide the most extensive coverage in the mouth.

Laser Dentistry

Used for all procedures requiring minimal anesthesia, less tooth reduction and faster recovery, laser dentistry is the latest dental technology that’s minimally invasive.
